Not an Osprey

In case anyone is looking at this be aware it is NOT an Osprey. Most likely a Crompton.

Lets pass the boat around

Oh No Not Again

Its like playing pass the parcel with this boat!!

Why is it exchanging hands so much - does it get a really bad tank slapper on?

Why do people try sell boats with the covers on?

I might be the time waster he is referring to !
I paid him a fifty quid deposit after agreeing to buy it after it failed to sell at a previous auction, then I posted a pic of the engine on the boat-mad forum and was informed that the engine is a bitza, at least three different engines/years.
So I let him keep the fifty quid because he didn't actually say the engine wasn't made up from bits of others !
I bet it goes like stink mind.
